    Corporate clients and partners attended the celebratory ceremony to congratulate the hotel on its opening. Guests were treated to a Japanese cultural display including a koto performance, taiko drumming, and the traditional breaking of the sake barrel, Kagami biraki, to usher in good fortune for the newly opened hotel. This traditional Japanese ceremony represents harmony and good fortune. It is believed that once the lid of the sake barrel is opened, the gods will grant many years of happiness and prosperity.

    “We are delighted that Hotel Okura Manila officially opens today. At this hotel, we are confident that Okura’s omotenashi together with the warmest Filipino hospitality, in conjunction with our spirit of Wa (harmony or teamwork), would evolve into the ultimate hospitality,” said Hotel Okura Co., Ltd. President Toshihiro Ogita.
